My ****ing miserable existence will be over.

Nude Batlord with a surgically attached orangutan vagina.

1. How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed your life for the better? How about for the worse?

Are you ****ing god damn kidding me? I have one friend who I haven't seen in months but because everywhere else is closed and we have mad coupons and deals it's like torture every day for months. I go into work and get hit with a neverending line for eight hours a day every single day and I want to stab them all in the throat and watch them bleed out.

2. To what degree do you use social media? If you do use it, do you consider a net positive to your life?

I use here and only here and it's the majority of my human contact now that work is just a mindless meatgrinder.

3. What is one problem you foresee being solved in the next 50 years?

That's like asking how much younger do you think you'll be in 50 years.


4. You are forced to go into armed combat with an intelligent orangutan that knows jiu-jitsu - you can bring one weapon (or object) that is not a firearm - what do you bring?

A crossbow.

5. You're going to a party with all the cool kids - you want to show them how cool you are - what beverage do you bring to the party to share?

Jim Jones Kool-Aid

6. Have you ever read a book that changed your life? If so, what book was it?

The Star Wars expanded universe novels were pretty massive for me when I was a teenager.

1. How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed your life for the better? How about for the worse?
Lost a job I've been wanting to leave for a while.
Lost a few aquaintances/friends to Covid. Really bad year, socially.

2. To what degree do you use social media? If you do use it, do you consider a net positive to your life?
Scant usage.
Neutral.

3. What is one problem you foresee being solved in the next 50 years?
Personally - finally doing what I love to do for a living.
Society - nothing. People are in love with problems. They only want to solve them, not end them. One problem is almost always replaced by another.

4. You are forced to go into armed combat with an intelligent orangutan that knows jiu-jitsu - you can bring one weapon (or object) that is not a firearm - what do you bring?
Glass of water to wake my silly ass up from the dream.

5. You're going to a party with all the cool kids - you want to show them how cool you are - what beverage do you bring to the party to share?

Southern Comfort. And hope to get laid with someone I actually like.

6. Have you ever read a book that changed your life? If so, what book was it?
Notes From Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky
Before I read it I had no idea people felt that deeply and were as simultaneously as clueless about those feelings in others. And that there was still hope of love.

Whisky. No idea how cool that really is but it started to be my beverage of choice as a teenager just to rebel against the over-sweet cocktails girls around me were drinking and I felt very cool about it then
It's official, we're friends now.

Befriend him with a banana and then we both go after whoever is forcing us to fight each other. It would not only save us, but potentially thousands of injuries and deaths down the line.

However, if being a violent lackey is the only thing that the orangutan knows, would I have unknowingly ruined their life by attempting to save them? Maybe using the orangutan in my plot to kill their former master would put them in the mindset that I am now their new master, ready to pit them against anyone. The orangutan's thirst for violence may not end when the commands to attack stop. I could begin to send the orangutan to murder more people or deprive it of its true nature. Even if I did give it an outlet for violence, at what point would a new opponent wield the banana just as I did and cause my own death? It would only be a matter of time. It would be better to take on these opponents myself to provide the orangutan with violence by proxy. Though if nonviolence was my goal all along, would it really be worth it?
As long as we get responses like this on these forums, this medium will never die. I almost prolapsed my ******* from reading this.

How about someone you actually hate? After a few glasses of Sourthern Comfort, what difference would it honestly make?

So I take it you see no benefits at all? What about cough guards at the grocery store checkout?

I for one quite like waiters/waitresses wearing masks. You ever had that experience where a waiter/waitress would bring you your food, set it down on the table and then start talking while their spittle just gets spread all over the fresh food that was just laid in front of you?

Are you objectifying Batty? If so, you have been admonished.

1. How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed your life for the better? How about for the worse?
I love being home with my son and not having to go to the office. However, working remotely has become a bit overwhelming (I report to over 20 people and their demands have increased). Feeling very anxious and having sleep problems.

2. To what degree do you use social media? If you do use it, do you consider a net positive to your life?
Hardly at all – I just don’t have the time to keep up. MB of course, and just texting/phone with family and friends.

3. What is one problem you foresee being solved in the next 50 years?
With ongoing advances in technology and research I think certain types of cancers will be eradicated.

4. You are forced to go into armed combat with an intelligent orangutan that knows jiu-jitsu - you can bring one weapon (or object) that is not a firearm - what do you bring?
An extra-extra-long sword

5. You're going to a party with all the cool kids - you want to show them how cool you are - what beverage do you bring to the party to share?
Absinthe drip cocktails with those beautiful glasses and spoons.

6. Have you ever read a book that changed your life? If so, what book was it?
Reading my father’s old copy of The Bhagavad-Gita (Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood translation) as a young teen.

1. How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed your life for the better? How about for the worse?
For the better: being put in a situation of re-evaluation and analysis of everyday life that is easily taken for granted coupled with a certain amount of freedom to really devote to creative projects at longer stretches makes me happy and keeps me away from the constant doomscrolling that would probably arise if I weren’t so busy. The worst personal aspects are the ones dealing with the anxiety centered around the unknowns concerning the virus and the ways it’s not being handled.

2. To what degree do you use social media? If you do use it, do you consider a net positive to your life?
I’m not on any of the big ones. I’ve always liked specific subject forums since the 90s and the fact that I’m on this one is a bit of an anomaly. Creative sharing is important to me.

3. What is one problem you foresee being solved in the next 50 years?
I’m hoping that it’ll be Alzheimer's.
Also, I think it would be nice to see Alzheimer's eradicated.

4. You are forced to go into armed combat with an intelligent orangutan that knows jiu-jitsu - you can bring one weapon (or object) that is not a firearm - what do you bring?
A platina wedge-slicing durian launcher.

5. You're going to a party with all the cool kids - you want to show them how cool you are - what beverage do you bring to the party to share?
I’d never pretend that I’m “cool.”

6. Have you ever read a book that changed your life? If so, what book was it?
Before reading Frown’s answer, I immediately thought Cage‘s Silence as well.
I still have my first well-worn and personally addressed to me hardback copy of it that I still cherish.
Also, a book that I’ve used for nearly 50 years that has the same amount of gravitas for me that the I-Ching had for Cage is Shepherd's Glossary of Graphic Signs and Symbols.

1. Who do you resemble more, your mother or father?
2. Can you imitate anyone/anything? (mega bonus points for voice recording proof)
3. You're stuck on a desert island with all MB members and one person only is appointed the task of getting you all home safely. Who do you choose?
4. Have you ever been kicked out of a bar/nightclub/restaurant etc. and if so, why?
5. Do you own a skateboard? (and do you use it)
6. If everyone could have wings like those of any existing animal, what kind of wings would you choose?
